Publication of James Bond: The Legacy, a book to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Dr. No (1962), the first James Bond film. The book is written by our friends, John Cork and Bruce Scivally.

James Bond: The Legacy is the official, definitive guide to the 007 phenomenon. Loaded with anecdotes, facts, and illustrations, the book provides features on the key actors, from Sean Connery to Pierce Brosnan, directors, costume and set designers, and others working behind the scenes. Without a doubt, this is the book of the Bond World. James Bond: The Legacy takes readers through a comprehensive-and fun-history of the movies.

The book places the films in the context of their times, showing how producers Albert "Cubby" Broccoli and Harry Saltzman drew inspiration from the Cold War and from suave, glamorous icons like Hugh Hefner and JFK, and how later world events shaped story lines-and even how closely the series presaged actual technological developments. As the films move into their fifth decade, the book traces the total Bond impact, through fashion, the Austin Powers films, the Robbie Williams video, and much more, on a whole new generation.

Illustrated with over 550 rare photographs, illustrations, and storyboards from the Bond archives.
